Comtech Telecommunications bags $5.5 million from a U.S. defense contractor

Telecom Lead America: Comtech Telecommunications’
subsidiary Comtech Systems has received an order valued at $5.5 million for its
modular transportable troposcatter system (MTTS) from a U.S. defense contractor
for end use by the U.S. Army.

MTTS, a rapidly deployable, transit case-based
troposcatter system, represents a major advancement in rapidly deployable
troposcatter systems. The MTTS cases are designed to be used in line-of-sight
(LOS), beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) dual diversity, and full over-the-horizon
microwave (tropo) quad diversity applications.

Comtech said the MTTS solution delivers high-throughput
capacity to enable surveillance, situational awareness and real-time data to remote,
infrastructure-challenged locations.

Moreover, MTTS allows direct transmission between sites,
eliminates recurring costs, and reduces the complexity and delay in satellite
communications currently used today. The MTTS solution enhances communications
capabilities with seamless compatibility and interoperability with
legacy-fielded troposcatter systems used currently by the U.S. Military,
including the AN/TRC-170.

This award for additional MTTS terminals is a testament
to our industry-leading and field-proven troposcatter system technology. We are
pleased that MTTS will play an important role in delivering mission-critical
bandwidth to the battlefield,” said Fred Kornberg, president and chief
executive officer of Comtech Telecommunications.
